Comments: Good and fun pitch. Still cleaning up a bit, but no big deal. Might as well get on it since you'll be waiting in line for FCTM anyway. The bolting job is adequate.

Comments: Pretty hard. The big move up high is the least of your worries. All of the pinching and twisting in the early part will probably stop most.

Comments: Pretty good pitch. Need some route finding skills though.
Give it a try.

Comments: Pretty chossy even by NJC standards. Probably lots broke. We snapped off a few holds, which maybe means it's "cleaning-up". And yes, route finding skills help. It's more like 11d past the first couple bolts.

Comments: This thing is pretty tough, but fun overall. The feet around the last couple of moves are pretty small.

Comments: Lesser quality but still fun. My standards have always been low however.
I think the start is a bit harder than 11b, was kinda punchy.

Comments: The description is dead on. Weird, but fun finish finding the right holds.
Worthwhile if you need some shade.

Comments: This thing likely doesn't get done much, mediocre rock. It's not a give-away 12a. Kinda stiff I thought.


Location: California : Sierra Eastside : Lone Pine Area : Whitney Portal : The Beach : Tree Line (5.12a)

Comments: Troy, Bob and I freed this is the fall of 02 and Bob drilled the bomber, modern anchor. We wanted to name it Cabin Boy at first, but Troy doesn't like homo-erotic connotations in his route names apparently. Tree line seemed like an ok 2nd choice since, at the time, the tree was in perfect line with the crack and essentially hid the climb from anyone hiking up the North Fork Trail. The tree now sadly lies on the ground. Not sure when it fell.
